Great assurance for the weight!
- I've put it through the wringer
This is a piece of equipment that I carry often, but do not use often (but when I use it, I'm happy I did!). As a backcountry skier, I'm not always planning on entering terrain where an ice axe is required, but sometimes my objectives or the conditions change and I'd prefer a little extra traction. It weighs next to nothing and takes up minimal space in my pack, but in conjunction with my Pro Alu III Shovel (which I always carry), it can change my comfort level on spicier terrain. Works great in combination with a BD Whippet! I am a member of the Ortovox team and have been given this product to test and use.
